University of Florida alumni from across the country will return to campus on Saturday, February 20, 2016 to perform in and attend a special concert, Bobby Shew Live, featuring the UF Jazz Band and Gary Langford. Scott Wilson, head of UF’s Jazz program, says the reunion concert is a dream in the making. Planning for the concert, which will feature alumni and students playing alongside one another, began when he found a CD in the archives of a 1983 concert at UF featuring Bobby Shew and the UF Jazz Band. Members of the 1983 band and Shew will return to the University Auditorium stage on February 20 at 7:30 p.m. for a reunion concert that is free and open to the public.
Donations are being accepted to the Bobby Shew Jazz/Lead Trumpet Scholarship. Those who make a donation of $30 or more will receive the Bobby Shew Live 1983 CD. To make a donation, please click here.
Special thanks to the generous support of Dr. Michael Ragan.
